Help! Bahama shutter color looks horrible!
At the tail end of my build and was really looking forward to seeing how the Bahama shutters would look. Originally I signed off on the color Iron Ore by Sherwin Williams. The corbels on the house are Iron Ore (as will be the front door eventually). My builder said since the shutters were aluminum he couldn't paint them Iron Ore because of something about "negative electrons" etc...So he had me pick from a deck of samples of just your typical black, bronze (looked brown), gray, green. He thought black would look best. I relayed my worry about it looking too stark but again they said it couldn't be painted. Well black it was and now they were recently installed. They look horrible and harsh especially comparing them to the iron ore color of the corbels (which are a bit dusty and need to be cleaned). I feel horrible and don't know what to do. Is this "negative electron" thing legit? What can I do??? Thanks for all your help!
